, distinguished service cross, bronze star, purple hea heart, left an arm in italy. a. as he said to me that last meeting we had together, "anything other than the arm?" i got shot in the arm and in the leg a couple times sm. we will all miss him, and that's a gross understatement. i wish i were capable of saying more, but i -- that's all i can say is that i've talked to his wife irene. she's there with his son, and i've known for a few hours that this wasn't working out well with senator inouye. but he is certainly one of the giants of the senate. remember what he said. he told his son when asked why he fought the way he did after having been declared an enemy alien, he said, he did it for the children. that's senator inouye. his commitment to our nation will never be surpassed. his service in the senate will be with the greats of this body. now, i could ask my friend if he wishes to speak on this issue. it would be my hope that the two votes that are scheduled, that we could do both of these judges by voice vote. i don't think it's appropriate to have a recorded vote at this time. so i'd ask un

's highest military medal for action in italy. as a member of the senate, senator inouye continued his fierce defense of his state in his partnership with alaska. my preye predecessor, ted steve, knew senator inouye as his brother. they worked together and produced much good for both our states. that will last for generations. when i was elected to this office, senator inouye was one of the first members to reach out to me to ask how he could help. the unique thing about senator inouye was always his quiet approach to all the issues. he provided me quiet advice and helped me learn how this place works. many times i'd be down here at the podium and in the well here waiting for the vote to be tallied or members to vote, and snon senator inouye was come in, stand at the edge there and look up and just say, how's it going, alaska? and we would have a brief conversation and usually his words were land incredible insight -- it may not even be relevant to the topic that we were voting on, but he'd say something to me about something he knew i was working on. and he would just share a few words. i kn

my stay both in aleppo and italy you see every day, especially if you could to center aleppo, it is bombing. it is a warm toward situation -- war torn situation. different italians were able to unite. one of the first issues was to get them out of the city. it is much more likely that you get bombed. based on they got bombed. -- later on they got bombs. the first challenge is that the city has to be able to defend themselves. how are they going to be able to sustain anything meaningful? >> this is a very good question. whether or not the civilian efforts are sustainable, it depends on whether or not the civilians are empowered to meet the needs are not. i work with a supreme assembly. what i know about the council is not based on my filtered to allow bela lot of. -- based on my relationship with aleppo. one of the main challenges they are facing is this empowerment components. they have ambitious projects. in the security committee in of did not want the fsa to control the liberated areas. to do this they appointed a brigadier general. i met with him. he wanted to start a com
war was the first to see the future. the fascist rose to power in italy, then germany, then a samara totalitarian culture in japan where a fascination await anyone who questioned the destiny of japan to all of asia, the remaining democracies in europe lacked the will to stop even the weakest of aggressors. when mussolini successfully crushed ethiopia, and none of the league of nations states oppose them, that's higher -- it was already dead. this of course was long before hitler invaded poland. a world war ii let me only but they say that what saved the world in our view was that the progressive liberal, new deal government of franklin d. roosevelt, most likely out of sheer desperation unleashed a productive power of free market capitalism to bury the acid towers in a tsunami of tanks, planes, and ships. anyone who's read my my books knows the statistics of pink slime just not far from where i teach, a tank was built from scratch in four and a half hours. henry kaiser's shipyard churned out a liberty ship in a record four and a half days. that's faster than most of my students can wr

carter to visit italy with the delegation, members of congress, italian american members of congress, and we went there to deliver assistance from the dwrites government after an earthquake in southern italy. and one of the village we visited there was a rehearsal for first commune ongoing on in the church. so just about every 7-year-old in the village was in church practicing for first holy commune on. when the earthquake hit, the -- communian. when the earthquake hit, the roof came down, every 7-year-old in the village was gone. it was impossible to console the people there. not only had they individually lost their child, which is unthinkable, but the whole town had lost that class, their future, their new growth, their hopes, their babies. their babies. so how -- and that really frmpled my thinking about how fragile -- transformed my think being how fragile life is. this was a natural disaster. what happened in newtown was a personal decision about someone whose judgment was thoroughly impaired, who had -- how could he do this? how could he do it? because he had his own problems.
in a wheelchair. on april 14, 1969, the same date he was injured in the hills of italy 24 years earlier, he made his maiden speech on the topic of americans with disabilities. in every legislative initiative since then, bob dole has been a leader on behalf of people with disabilities. bills like the rehabilitation act of 1973, the individuals with disabilities education act, idea, the developmental disabilities act and the americans with disabilities act. he was responsible for including people with disabilities in the telecommunications act of 1996, and for ensuring that people with disabilities are part of the state department's annual report on human rights around the world. after leaving this chamber, bob dole prompted the congress to pass the ticket to work and work incentives act of 1999, breakthrough legislation on health care and employment for people with disabilities. this past year, he has been instrumental in working with the administration and congress to ensure bipartisan support for the convention on the rights of persons with disabilities to reflect american leadership and values
minister of italy, he comes out with a package two thirds tax hikes, one third tax cuts. and i remember saying do you think this will work, they're raising the v.a.t. tax and i understand italian household debt isn't that high, but they were trying to tax their way out of a massive debt problem and in fact receipts went down, consumption fell to 4.25 annualized rate and the situation got much worse. today italy has zero nominal gdp grets. and they're funding at 4.5%. that is a bad business model. spain same story. so when you bnk our package and what's been offered so are far which appears like $1.6 trillion in tax hikes against $400 billion of entitlement cuts over time, that's an even worse mix than the two-thirds/one-third european structure that really has gotten a negative reaction. >> how much is because of the mix and how much of it just this is what austerity looks like? >> is the money in capping deductions or raising marginal tax rates? it's in capping deductions. but that's tough because you have to tell someone no like the housing lobby or charitable contributions. >> cappin

that is remarkable about the life of dan inouye. the story of his service on the battlefields of italy, --, is indeed remarkable, the physical courage that he displayed in winning the medal of honor is alone enough to earn the title hero. but rising above his physical courage and the guts that he showed is the moral courage that it took for dan inouye and his fellow japanese americans to even set foot on that battlefield. what is it that spurs some of our countrymen to offer their lives in defense of a country that shuns them? where does that love of country come from? and how can we impart some of it to those who too often take this country for granted? it would be a wonderful tribute to dan inouye to seek out ways to encourage such service by future generations. dan inouye's work did not end when he took office -- off his soldier's union you uniform. in many ways, it was just beginning. forced by the loss of his arm to give up dreams of a medical career, he entered politics. his was one of the most remarkable careers of public service that our country has ever seen. we will miss dan inouye so much

in afghanistan, what happened that got you a call from the president when you were stationed in italy? >> my unit battle company, we were in a near ambush and there was 18 of us. everyone was doing everything they could. the majority of the shooting was done by all the people around me, which allowed me the freedom of movement. the taliban were trying to take a prisoner, soldier joshua brennan was shot several times and he was still alive and they were carrying him away. as i ran forward, i eliminated the threat and i grabbed sergeant brenner and brought him back to our line, as everyone else continued to fight. it's difficult for me to sit here alone because there are so many great people that are the reason why i'm here. i didn't look out for myself. they looked out for me. and two great men lost their lives that night. >> gretchen: what was it like for you to know that you had been bestowed this amazing honor that no living person has achieved since the vietnam war? >> it kind of hurt me at first. i read the stories about medal of honor recipients and they're heros, they're men that history bo

service cross, bronze star, purple hea heart, left an arm in italy. a. as he said to me that last meeting we had together, "anything other than the arm?" i got shot in the arm and in the leg a couple times sm. host: joining us from new york city this morning, mr. fund, i just want to begin, if we could, actually, with the front page of "the washington post." in the news that president obama is looking at proposals on guns. obama asked his cabinet members for ideas to curb violence. what do you make of that? guest: well, we've been this way before. in 1994, president clinton signed an assault weapons ban into law. it expired in 2004. so we have 10 years of experience of what that ban did. and frankly, a university of pennsylvania study looked at all of that said that while there was some slight decrease in the use of assault weapons, it did nothing for overall gun violence. assault weapons, semi-automatics are used between 2% and 8% of crimes and it said the gun ban did nothing to reduce the overall level of gun violence in this country. look, i mean, this is a very tragic situation. and i
a right hand at that point. he'd left it knitly, fighting for -- he'd left it in italy, fighting for this country. he broke barriers large and small throughout his life. but one of the things i loved about him was i saw that relationship with ted stevens. i still remember their desks were right across the aisle from one another. i remember them working and working and working together an owl kinds of legislation -- on all kinds of legislation. and they were brothers. and, you know, their love and friendship transcended partisan divide certainly, but also really they were totally for the national interest. and i think they set a great example for all of us, how we can work together. they didn't always agree. if you look at their voting record, they voted opposite each other a lot of times, but they worked together and they had an exemplary relationship that i think we can all follow. mr. president, i just want to say one or two more words. then i know i have other colleagues here that want to speak. we had senator inouye come to the senate prayer breakfast a few months ago. for th
, we got a three here. caller: i am about an hour from newtown. italy makes a difference if she did not have her firearms secured. -- it only makes a difference if she did not have her firearms secured. host: thanks for your time. guest: james is right about the issue with serial numbers on various parts. particularly assault rifles and can be reassembled in various ways. there are things that can be done. you can step serial numbers on various parts of the action of the gun. most guns used in crime are handguns. those have less squabble parts -- swappable parts. this point about education, that is certainly right. everyone would be a lot safer if gun owners were required to go through some sort of safety training. a lot of folks to not go through training because there are no rules in most states requiring them to do so. it is very difficult to know whether the person who is purchasing a firearm and knows what they're doing with it and knows how to secure it. that is why a lot of these guns and up being used inadvertently or otherwise in crime or accidental shootings. host:a tweet,

fortifications in northern italy. the valor, courage, selflessness and determination that he displayed during the battle are the stuff of legend. and this would later earn him the congressional medal of honor. during this attack, he sustained serious permanent injuries that served as a constant reminder of his sacrifice for our country. senator inouye began his political career as a member of a wise territorial house of representatives -- as a member of hawaii's territorial house of representatives in 1954. almost immediately his colleagues tapped him as the majority leader of that body. his tremendous leadership ability was already apparent then. he then ascended to the territorial senate in 1958 and became hawaii's first u.s. congressman with the tkpwrafpbgt statehood in 19 -- granting of statehood in 1959. three years later he became a member of the u.s. senate elected a staggering nine consecutive terms, continuing to serve until his death this week. i believe his effectiveness as a senator and his devotion to his state that no challenger ever mounted a serious threat for his seat. throug
